The journalist and associate lecturer in Social Jornalism of the Carlos III University of Madrid will give the speech ‘The women who said: enough’, on the life of the activist Ana María Pérez del Campo, tomorrow in the Aula Magna of the Cultural Centre La Nau at 7.00 p.m. on the occasion of the cycle ‘Dones Creadores’ of the Escola Europea de Pensament Lluís Vives.
At the conference, Charo Nogueira illustrates the deep change which the Spanish women experienced the last half of the century through the figure of Ana María Pérez del Campo, a Spanish feminist activist registered in marriage law and pioneer in the fight for the women’s rights during the dictatorship of Franco and during the Spanish transition to the democracy. ‘Her starting point was not very common: a girl coming from an aristocratic family who refused her predestinate fate. She got divorced when it implied having a bad reputation and she became feminist to understand the unfairness from which she suffered only because she was a woman in the 60s. Since then, she has fought to guarantee rights for other women’, explains the journalist.
Charo Nogueira has worked for 25 years in El País; previously she had already worked in Diario 16, the Grup Zeta, the magazine Tribuna, in La Cadena Ser and in the news agencies Lid and Fax Press, headed by Manu Leguineche. She is expert in social problems and in gender equality and she has also worked in international fields, in Spain, in the cultural field, in the social field, in Madrid and in some reportages. Furthermore, she has received an award on the jounalist against gender-based violence of the Institut de la Dona (2004), the most important award on the erradication of this type of violence of the Judiciary Power Counsel (2005) and on the practice of non-sexist communication of the Associació de Dones Periodistes de Catalunya (2012). Moreover, she is the author of ‘Viaje en la Antartida. Vida y secretos de un contienente desconocido’ (Alianza Editorial), the result of her participation in the first Spanish expeditions to the white continent.
